Ultrasound therapy uses mechanical energy in the form of sound waves which vibrate tissues at varying frequencies usually at either 1 or 3 MHz depending on the depth of the lesion.

What are the effects of ultrasound therapy and what does it do?

  • Thermal and non-thermal depending on the intensity of the power and frequencies used (1 or 3 Mhz) and depth of lesion
  • Micro-massage and compression of the cell to increase the permeability of matter and metabolism.
  • Stable cavitation is a stable expansion and contraction of gases within the cell
  • Acoustic streaming of the cell alters its permeability
  • Have a Proinflammatory effect – assists the healing process
  • Increases collagen, exudate and fibroblast production around the injury site which is a vital component in healing
